Recently, nitric oxide NO has been implicated as an epigenetic factor in keloids, a scarring disease occurring primarily in dark skinned people who have relatively high amounts of pigment melanin. In this work, we tested whether a melanin-mediated redox reaction involving adsorbed NO and O2 can couple NO oxidation with O2 reduction to form reactive oxygen species ROS or reactive nitrogen species RNS
